UVU Victorian Literature (Fall 2019) Dashboard



This group is a collaborative effort of the members of Utah Valley University's, Fall 2019 "Victorian Literature" class. As a class, we will be exploring the material culture of the Victorian Era. Each class member will be responsible for identifying an object of interest in one of our course texts. After identifying their chosen object, they will research its history, pursuing how this object was produced, advertised, traded, used, and discarded during the nineteenth century. Following their research, each member will contribute posts to the class gallery, timeline, and map (as appropriate per object). Once they've contributed to the class's digital archive, members will present their findings to the class and write a short reflection on how their findings enrich their reading of the text in which they discovered their object. By tracing the material history of an individual object, each member will gain a deeper appreciation for nineteenth-century material culture and its relationship to the Victorian literary imagination.
